1; David praises God for his all-seeing providence;
17; and for his infinite mercies.
19; He defies the wicked.
23; He prays for sincerity.
* A.M. 2956. B.C. 1048. (Title.) A Psalm.
This Psalm is supposed to have been composed by David when
made king of Israel; though some think it was written by him
when accused of traitorous designs against Saul. It is a most
sublime ode on the wisdom, knowledge, presence, and justice of
God: the sentiments are grand, the style highly elevated, and
the images various, beautiful, and impressive.
* thou hast.
